The City of Burlington is strengthening ties with its “twin city” in the Netherlands.
Burlington Mayor Rick Goldring and Apeldoorn Mayor John Berends have signed an Expression of Interest to promote economic development opportunities between the cities.
Goldring says the expression of interest focuses on advancing potential partnerships in three specific areas, the clean technology sector, trade partnerships and an exchange program for post-secondary students.
The two cities have had a twinning agreement since 2005.
The announcement came at the end of Berends latest visit to Burlington. Goldring was in Apeldoorn last year.
